EURO 2024: England draw with Denmark, Spain beat Italy

Soccer betting news

England were unconvincing yet again as they were held to a 1-1 draw with Denmark on Thursday in their second match of EURO 2024.

Bayern Munich’s Harry Kane gave the Three Lions the lead in the 18th minute, attaining a personal milestone of scoring in four consecutive major tournaments.

However, England failed to sustain their early lead, with Denmark drawing level through a fantastic long-range effort from Morten Hjulmand in the 34th minute.

Despite settling for a draw, England remain top of Group C on four points.

Needing just a point to advance into the last 16, online bookmakers have Gareth Southgate’s side as -232.56 favourites to beat Slovenia (+740).

Meanwhile, Slovenia looked well on course to secure their first-ever win in EURO football thanks to a Zan Karnicnik goal midway through the second half, only to be denied by Serbia’s Luka Jovic deep into injury time.

The 1-1 draw leaves Serbia bottom of Group C with one point, while Slovenia sit third on three points.

Elsewhere, Spain secured passage into the knockout phase with a 1-0 win over defending champions Italy.

The match failed to live up to its considerable expectations, however, as it was only settled by an own goal from Riccardo Calafiori 10 minutes into the second half.

Second in Group B behind leaders Spain, Italy can book their place in the knockout phase when they face Croatia on Monday.

Spain are among the favourites for the EURO 2024 crown, paying +540 outright odds at Bovada.

Meanwhile, the top EURO 2024 betting sites have Italy pegged at +1500 to retain their European Championship title.
